Tube of Liquor Hidden in Prohibition Boot
These shoes were quite popular during the prohibition era. You could buy them in many shoe stores. They don't look like they were very comfortable.

I want some. Similar shoes are in fashion, at the moment. I'm not sure what I'd carry in the smuggling-tube, since I don't drink, but they don't look too hard to walk in. Certainly easier than the platform stripper heels! :D

I don't think "comfortable" is a criterium for many shoe purchases.
